While the Oscars obviously serve as the entertainment focal point themselves, you’re going to want to incorporate something that compliments or enhances the experience for your guests! We’re thinking games… lots of them!
Game One: “And the Oscar Goes to…” Upon arrival, have your guests fill out ballot cards listing off some of the top Awards for the evening (ie. Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Original Score etc.). At the end of the night tally up everyone’s answers… the winner is of course the individual who made the most accurate predictions! Bonus Points for those who predicted whether the speeches of “said winners” would be cut off by the orchestra!
Game Two: “Who Are You Wearing?” The red carpet is of COURSE our personal favourite part of the entire evening! This is when we get an up close peek at all of the uber glamourous looks of the night! For this game, set it up as a Bingo of sorts! Have fun squares for “Actor Brings His Mom as a Date”, “Actress That Wears a Cocktail Dress”, “An Interview with a “Bleep” Moment” etc!
Game Three: “Whose Line Is It?” Have your guests try to match up some of the more infamous quotes from each of the films nominated! On a sheet of paper have one column of this years’ movie posters, and another column of the quotes, simply have your guests draw lines connecting the matchups!
